Those are Hose Techniques kits, which include unnecessary things like hose to cover your hood prop rod, and windshield washer hoses. Unless you're the kind of ricer who wants to highlight every hose under your hood in a contrasting color, you're better off just ordering the sizes and lengths needed to replace what's needed functionally.

Go straight to Hose Techniques website, and order their sample kit, which is ~$5 shipped, and includes a $5 discount coupon off your next order.

So they can be nice and flexy for routing, won't get brittle (fuel hose does under heat). And I thought they did not cavitate..

Haven't compared prices, but these guys always deliver exactly what you think you ordered and are reasonably fast. Plus they are local to me.

I bought all my vacuum tubing and silicone couplers from www.siliconehose.com. Seemed to have good prices at the time, but I haven't checked recently. At a quick glance, they still look to be cheaper than siliconeintakes.com.
